PROFILE

柳田國男を師とする民俗学・国文学の研究者であり、「釈迢空」の名で歌を作る歌人でもある。豊富な知識と先を予見する鋭い直感で多くの歌人や小説家から尊敬されている。頭の回転は速いが、やや浮世離れしており、生活能力に乏しい。そのため困ることもあるが、自然と周囲の人から助けられる徳の持ち主。何故か機械をよく壊す。

A researcher of folkloristics and Japanese literature, as well a poet composing poetry under the name of Shaku Choukuu. He regards Yanagita Kunio his teacher. Because of his rich knowledge and sharp instinct to foresight the future, he's respected by many poets and novelists. He's quick with thinking, but as he's quite detached from the real world, he lacks what it takes to lead a normal life. That's why he has his troubles, but also the virtue to be naturally helped by the people around him. For some reason he frequently breaks appliances and machines.


Trivia


  • Orikuchi studied history, folklore, and other traditions under Yanagita Kunio, and later established his own field of folklorism. [1]
  • His tanka writings are distinct in their style of line breaks and punctuation, a convention not traditionally used in tanka poetry. [2] [3]
  • He was active under Araragiha from 1909 to 1921. Orikuchi then broke away from the group due to Saitou Mokichi's dissatisfaction with his aforementioned style of incorporating punctuation. [2]
  • He took on Fujii Harumi as a student, then as a legally adopted son. Harumi was killed in World War II, leaving Orikuchi stricken with grief. [2]
